Default type r engine for civic

I have a 93 or 94 automatic civic, where and for how much might I procure a type r engine for this car. I knew a guy who got one from miami for like $2,000 but I have no idea where he is now so I can't ask him about it. I don't even know if they work in automatics.

i would think that you could call honda themselves and ask for a b18c5. Also, i would think that the engine would work fine if your car is automatic. If not change it to manual. I dunno but me personally, i would go turbo

the only big difference will be the where the tranny enters the cabin... i dunno never did anything like that. .. it shouldnt be to different though maybe a little modding would be needed

ughh @ swapping a manual into an auto, dont forget about your ecu being a little different ( might cause probs), rewiring the reverse light, adding the clutch pedal, plus if you know how to weld, u need to add a couple brackets for the tranny , and some other crap i cant think of right now. thats why i sold my auto 95 hatchback, was gonna throw the b18b in it and turbo charge it but i didnt know how to weld back then and didnt feel like foolin with all the fabrication , now that im 25 its simple to do but takes patience. gl, lemme know

first off its not that difficult at all...

my hatch is a 95 and auto and well i was supposed to do the transfer to manuel this winter but no money nor time stopped me.. and all that is needed is the following.

1. new axels to accomidate the manuel
2. ECU
3. clutch pedal (and you gotta think if you want hydraulic or cable)
4. tranny
5. maybe two brakets at most (not for the tranny but for the shifter arms)

its a very easy job all you need is patiences. well worth it in the end. i would say do the swap and get your self a nice type-r engine fits nicely and will give you nice power..

Yea its not that hard, and well worth it. To me it would be pointless to put a type R motor in with an automatic. Plus a full swap, tranny, wire harness, axles, clutch is cheaper as a package.

in that chassis the auto type r motor w/ auto trans will bolt up and mount correctly with out need of a mount kit but with factory honda parts. tranny mount from a 94-up integra. good luck scoring a b18c5 or b16b for less than $4000. go ls/vtec. or gsr.

hope your joking
type r and even GSRs were never made in automatics, all 5 speeds

and as for as the type r engine in the car
you will have to get all the wiring and ecu for the engine obd1 to obd2 conversion unless you get a 94-95 gsr engine then you may be able to get away with just the ecu,but i dont think so

its just way to much work to do the type r swap and not worth it IMO, since the engine is worth more than your car.....find a 99-00 SI engine and tranny and swap that into there,,,don for get that it will need the B series motor mounts as well.....just buy a civic with a swap or a integra.....be about the same price and no labor
